Disability and Aging
Call for Papers for the Journal of Elder Policy, 2024

Distinguished University Professor, Case Western Reserve University
As the global population grows older, attention is often placed on the potential for rising rates of disability. While it is important to call attention to this future issue, it is also vital to focus on the obstacles faced right now by older adults with disabilities—those aging with disability and those aging into disability.
While disability can lead to challenges for many older adults, it should not be assumed that those aging with or into disability cannot live meaningful and proactive lives. The aim of this issue of the Journal of Elder Policy is to explore the complex relationships between aging, disability, and policy. We welcome both empirical and conceptual papers from diverse disciplines and have a preference for pieces that employ policy approaches.
Topics may include but are not limited to:
- Assistive technology
- Built environment
- Attitudinal environment
- Intergenerational relationships
- Medical care for disabilities
- Cultural influences
- Disability and the labor market
- Proactive responses to living with disability
- Experiences of aging with disability
- Experiences of becoming disabled
Authors should send a 500 word abstract related to their paper by October 1 to Managing Editor, Kaitlyn Langendoerfer, PhD (email@example.com)
All articles will be peer reviewed.
